Samenvatting

Whether the Second Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians is a single document or a compilation of two or more, and the question of Paul's relations with the Corinthian church between the despatch of the First and the composition of the Second letter (or letters), have been matters of debate since the eighteenth century.Margaret Thrall's commentary engages with these and all the other issues associated with 2 Corinthians. There follows a detailed verse-by-verse exegesis of chapters 1-7, which attempts to understand the viewpoint of the original readers of the text as well as Paul's own.This volume covers many of Paul's writings which have evoked considerable scholarly interest in recent years. This is an exemplary addition to the ICC series.

Recensie(s)

It is difficult to praise Margaret E. Thrall's commentary on 2 Corinthians too highly. In my notice of the first volume I called attention to Dr Thrall's immense scholarship, clarity of mind, and lucid writing. These qualities continue through Volume II Here is everything that could be wished for in a commentary Throughout, the text is carefully analysed, the views of a wide range of scholars are set out and judicious decisions between them made - all with a beautiful clarity. Even when the reader disagrees with Dr Thrall's conclusions, he or she will have had their understanding enlarged and be given a deeper insight into the epistle. Reading this commentary one wonders why anyone should be satisfied with anything less elegant. The Bulletin for the Institute for Reformed Theology (Spring/Summer 2001) The high standard of meticulously detailed exegesis displayed in the first volume of Dr Thrall's magisterial commentary is continued in its sequel . . . In all respects, this volume and its predecessor surely deserve to be regarded as one of the most impressive contributions to this fine series . . . Historians and theologians alike will find this commentary an indispensable resource for the interpretation both of key passages and of others that might at first sight look innocent of historical or doctrinal significance. Journal of Theological Studies, 53.1 (April 2002) Students and scholars with good Greek skills who are working on 2 Corinthians must engage with this commentary. Foundations (May 2002) Margaret Thrall . . . is the perfect guide to assist the reader through this difficult text. . . . After a lifetime of work on Pal, she commands an awesome familiarity with every aspect of II Corinthians and the forest of literature upon it. The ICC commentaries are renowned for their thoroughness in exegetical detail, and Thrall provides translation, textual notes, linguistic analysis and historical discussion in full . . . Thus this is an ideal commentary for those engaged in serious, detailed engagement with the (Greek) text. Anvil, 18:4, 2001
